    Myself and a friend visited on a weekday in February 2024.

    We took a taxi (Taksi Jari Kaari) from Luosto to the Park and purchased our pre-booked tickets in the wooden Kopara Lodge adjacent to the car park. Then a 400 metre walk for the reindeer sledge. There were two reindeer ‘caravans’ during our visit and we had a sleigh each. It was a relaxing 30 minute ride on the snow through woodlands at walking pace. After the reindeer ride walked back to the Lodge via the Reindeer Trail where we could see reindeer at close hand and feed reindeer (mushroom pellets supplied). Food, drink and reindeer souvenirs can be purchased at the Lodge. We got the same taxi back to Luosto. In all, a brilliant and memorable day out.

    Visite the place in a hot day in June. After walking 2.5km from Ukko Luosto parking area, we were at cafe area where tickets (22€) could be bought...and some fresh donuts and coffee/soda could be purchased. The tours are staring at every hour between 11am-5pm, so you need to be there on time. Our guide was a young gentleman Olle. He was very knowable on different amethysts and guided us through the creation process all the way to actual mining. The mine is in open air, so uf you expect to walk into a cool mine tunnel, you will ve disappointed. I personally liked the tour a lot and naturally found a small amethyst. If you are not lucky to find your own, you may buy some from the store.

    Happy go lucky short wandering. What a beautiful spot to see, must come back during summertime. Two fireplaces: a cottage and an open fire place. Stairs take down to the fell, but unfortunately were out of use during wintertime.

    My wife and I went to this ice skating park one evening in Jan. Antti is the man in charge and he is really helpful and attentive. We met some friendly Finnish local people who have us free lessons and a 'crash course' into ice hockey. High quality equipment including helmets and knee pads were included and a free hot drink. Ice skating on a frozen lake under the northern lights surrounded by beautiful arctic forest is something that would recommend this to anyone in Luosto. The rink is less than 5 minutes walk from all the hotels and is easy to find, just follow the lights and signs by the lake.

    We went on a number of excursions with Lapland Safaris in Luosto and they were great! Our tour guides were amazing Lena and Elias (super elf) were fantastic on the snowmobiles making sure everyone had a good time and that everyone was happy and safe. The ride through the forest was beautiful (kids in sleighs) before stopping to warm up playing games and drinking warm berry juice. We also had the pleasure of Elias on our reindeer experience, which was magical. We had a ride through the forest, and fed the reindeers before warming up and getting to ask questions and learn more about the reindeers. My children, Thomas and Chloe, fell in love with him (especially Thomas) who chatted away to him on the coach and referred to him as ‘my elf’ all holiday. Thomas was more excited to see him than Santa. Thank you to everyone, including all the front desk staff (who were all so friendly and welcoming) for making our trip so special!

    I’d highly recommend this place. We booked the reindeer safari for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids 13 and 9 and we all loved it. We were greeted by a very friendly and welcoming Tomas if that how you spell it. We waited in the fire hut for other families to arrive and then went to the sledges for the reindeer ride. The ride was through a beautiful forest and with the sun rising and pink sky it looked magical. After the ride we went to the reindeer pen to feed the very lively reindeers and then back to the hut to warm up with the fire, hot drinks and a pastry. Tomas spoke to us about the reindeer and other things around the fire. Amazing experience that you won’t regret.

    We at their cafe around 10 miles away the day before without realising, the food was very tasty.

    We are a family of 5 and hired Pascal for a forest ski adventure. We were treated to a 5 kilometer tour of the national forest, crossing the cross country ski trials numerous times. Pascal stopped often to ensure all was well and to give us a bit of local knowledge of the environment.

    A stop at Rykimakero hut for sausages and more stories was the icing on the cake. (Best lesson of the week. Sausages must be 86% meat, anything less is no good, thanks Pascal)

    We found Pascal extremely engaging, entertaining and knowledgeable. Truly a highlight of our trip to Luosto.

    Our only regret is not doing the northern lights snow shoe tour we had planned. At least we have something to look forward to when we return.
